Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Light and restrained. Grassy. Drying hay. Meadow flowers. Lemon balm. Ahint of chicken broth.
Palate: Silky, delicate. Sweet orange blossom honey. Tangerine . Refreshing and soft on the palate. Elderflower cordial. Drying on spicy ginger. Minty withwater.
Finish: Dry and short.
Comment: This whisky is a 'whispering' one. Delicate, elegant but maybe a bit shy.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Fresh tobacco leaves, hay barns, lemon verbena tea. A slight apothecary note to it, drying herbs and a little spice.
Palate: Sweet and a little bitterness, orange marmalade, runny honey. A lemoncitrus note and then dusty spices, ginger, nutmeg.
Finish: Dries quickly.
Comment: Very held back, but in time slowly reveals delicate layers of flavour.
